To equip the teachers, barangay officials, student leaders, and other stakeholders with skills and knowledge of technical writing, the Languages Department (LD) conducted “Korespondensiya Opisyal”, a training seminar-workshop at Tanolong National High School, May 22-24, 2017.
This activity further aimed to link the PSU BC students and teachers to the community by providing updates and lectures on correspondence and business writing.
With the full support of the university and the effort of the LD staff, the event was launched successfully. The extension activity received university funding of Php 21,000.00 which was used for the program expenses, writeshop materials, and other miscellaneous costs.
The three-day activity comprised lectures both in English and Filipino business correspondence. The LD faculty members themselves gave lectures about the following: Korespondensiya Opisyal (Mrs. Mary Ann Macaranas), Parts and Formats of Letter (Ms. Tuesday de Leon), Mga Halimbawang Liham sa Filipino (Mrs. Ma. Theresa Macaltao), Writing Minutes of the Meeting (Mr. Romeo Reloza), Resolution Writing (Asso. Prof. Salome Motemayor) Mga Halimbawang Resolusyon at Katitikan ng Pulong (Mr. Erick Ancheta), Memorandum Writing (Dr. Mary Ann Bullagay), and Mga Halimbawang Memorandum at Ulat (Ms. Carla Grace de Leon) were given.
After the lectures, a writeshop proper was held. The participants were given time to construct letters of intent, memos, meeting minutes, and resolutions. “We are thankful and happy that PSU conducted seminar-workshops like this. This business correspondence training is truly essential, especially in our paperworks,” Ms. Ann Dangat, one of the TNHS teachers stated.
